MIRACLES 

Miracles are but simple things, 
The seed and spore of growth; 
They are no marvels any more with 
Science to explain. We seldom 
Doubt the forecast for weather 
Yet to come but often curse the 
Day, a plan were yet begun. 

So simple, yet so strange. 
These things so common now 
That still to child are mysterious 
Like noises in the wall, I 
Wonder yet what makes me think 
And why the sun comes up . . . But 
You, of course, have been to 
School and know the reason why, 

D. H. Brock 







Our Chapel 




The second floor of Gardiner Hall was 
turned into our inspiring Chapel with the 
help of William Bailey Co. in 1961. Harry 
Gulesian and Son, architects, transformed 
the low posted old gymnasium into a 
simple, colonial place of worship. 

The Chapel doors are always open 
to boys of any faith for meditation.

Meadmaster 's M^ssa^e 



It is my sincere hope that every boy graduating from Thompson Academy 
can go forth into the world with confidence and a relish for life. I want you 
to have enthusiasm, courage, and an abiding faith in the importance of your 
efforts, no matter what field of endeavor you choose, carry into it those 
homely virtues of honesty, integrity, and decency which are the mantle of 
a real man. Have compassion for others, respect for the fundamental rights 
of all people, and build about yourself a solid core of real friends. Take the 
time to savor the richness of life and the beauty of things you see, feel and 
touch. Don't be afraid of the unknown, have the courage to be yourself, and 
never pass up an opportunity to learn. Life is all too short as it is and much of 
the pleasure of living is often missed— excused only by haste and the artificial 
excitement of poorly conceived imperatives. Make a good life for yourself 
and make life good for people around you. 

All of you in the splendid Class of 1 962 have the capacity to live such lives 
and I challenge you to live up to what I expect.

Class History 



The year 1 962 marks the second graduating class to have gone 
through the four year academic curriculum since the name Farm 
and Trade School was changed to Thompson Academy in 1956. 

As Freshmen we elected Ralph Patterson president and George 
Mader vice president. 

As Sophomores we elected Ron Bates president and Bill O'Steen 
vice president. 

As Juniors we elected Ned AAcGonagle president, and James 
Gorman vice president. 

In our senior year Ralph Patterson was again elected president, 
James Gorman vice president, with George Mader as secretary 
and Ted Stokes treasurer. Bill O'Steen was chosen Student Council 
president with Rory Dewar and Martha Lindsey as the senior rep- 
resentatives. The class sponsored a food auction, the Football Vic- 
tory Dance and the Senior Prom. 

The class has achieved a high academic standing and over fifty 
per cent have participated in varsity athletics. We are proud to 
have won the intramural softball championship for three con- 
secutive years. 

Baccalaureate Services were held on June 5th with Graduation 
following on June 10th. 

Respectfully submitted, 

George Mader, Secretary 
Class of 1962

1961 Varsity Jo ot ball 










Coach Burns, Capt. Patterson, Head Coach Maddox. 



The 1961 Sea Hawks saw a busy and excit- 
ing season. The surprising opener, a tie with 
Rivers, preceded four straight wins and a heart 
breaking defeat fronn a nnighty Story team. 

We are proud that # 14 jersey, belonging to 
Ralph Patterson, the finest all around athlete in 
many years, has been forever retired at T.A. and 
will hang in the Trophy Case. 

The loss of many valuable players makes next 
year's team a greater coaching challenge.

1961 1 U Jootball 



The J.V.'s, like the Varsity, ran into a snag 
or two. Belmont Hill and Roxbury Latin proved 
bigger and better, however, our boys never gave 
up until the final whistle was blown. The first 
victory, 22-0 over Middlesex set a stiff pace which 
was held with Thayer, Dummer, and Rivers. 

Coaches Thomas and Mark with the assist of 
John Boudreau worked hard and long to whip 
the Little SEA HAWKS into a tough, unified team.

The 1962 Varsity team began practice with five returning letter-men and seven 
new candidates. 

Although the Seahawks had tremendous spirit, they were defeated in the 
first three games, first by Christian High and twice by St. Andrews. They then 
made a comeback with a 38-31 win over Rivers Country Day School. With spirits 
high, again, they took on New Prep of Cambridge, but to no avail. The defeat 
by two points, 52-50, was a hard loss. A second comeback for the season was 
made with our defeat of an excellent Thayer team and a tremendous victory 
over Christian High for the first time in seven years of competition. 

Cambridge School of Weston was our next opponent and bitter rival from 
football. Again we were beaten. 

Roxbury Latin, an easy victory; 48-29 was the prelude to a defeat at the hands 
of a fighting and superior Thayer Academy team which took the wind out of 
Seahawk sails, to the tune of 80-45. 

Our next two games were with teams we had never before played, Newman 
Prep and Maiden Vocational. An easy victory over Newman; 82-47, was no 
challenge but the loss to Maiden in a sloppy game was not a credit to the Hawks.

^umr Varsity 



The Junior Seahawks began a lively year in 1962 with the return of five 
letter-men and seven rookies. Mr. Thomas with his coaching skill welded this 
group into a fighting and able unit. High scoring center, Bob Marston and captain, 
Paul Gaucher, led the team. 

Our first game against Christian was a fiasco ending in a 20-35 defeat. The boys 
perked up for the next one and beat St. Andrews 42-31 only to play them again 
the following week; this time losing a close one, 37-36. 

The final games were all up hill with victories over New Prep, Thayer, Cam- 
bridge, New Prep, B. C. Freshmen and Thayer. 

With one game left to play with Cambridge and Weston, we hope to end the 
season with an 8-2 record.

baseball 



The 1962 baseball season is just around the corner. Through the guidance 
of Coach Maddox, our Varsity anticipates one of the best seasons yet on the 
books. 

We have seven lettermen coming out, along with eighteen new prospects. 
The team will be cut to the best fourteen after a few days of practice. It is afways 
regrettable that every candidate cannot make the team. 

Ralph Patterson completes his monopoly of all major sports this year with his 
election as baseball captain. 

Mr. Burns, the Junior Varsity coach, will begin to shape the new men with his 
equally busy season. We hope to watch some tense games with this surprising 
team.
